Alumna's Research Inquiry into Armenian Genocide's Long-Term Genetic Implications

"As a proud Alumni of AGBU MDS, I am reaching out in regards to a research study I am currently conducting.

I am a research partner with an Armenian Medical student, and we want to conduct research on the lasting effects of Armenian Genocide on our genetics. Genetic findings show that there are epigenetic changes due to the genocide. Different behaviors and even cancer can be inherited by generations above us who have had major life stressors (like the genocide). We want to see if we can find connections to Armenians having cancer and other behavioral differences due to being descendants of genocide.

In order for the study to be statistically significant, we need as many responses as possible! If you could please take the time to fill out our survey and possibly share it via email blast to all the parents/faculty/students, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you so much for your time!"
